Anti-Money Laundering (AML) Risk Assessments

Regulation 18 (1) of The Money Laundering, Terrorist Financing and Transfer of Funds (Information on the Payer) Regulations 2017 requires firms in the regulated sector to carry out a risk assessment, identifying and assessing the risks of money laundering and terrorist financing to which the practice is subject.

The regulations also specify a number of risk factors which must be taken into account.
